The last time I used Illustrator, it was the version previous to 2021. I was able to import and export workspaces from the Workspaces menu in that version. Now I've got Illustrator 2021, and I can't find a way to import a workspace from the Workspaces menu or the preferences, and I can't find anything online that says that others have had the same problem. I also tried copying the .exec file of my custom workspace into the folder with the rest of the workspaces, but it seems to be a different file type than the pre-installed ones, and it's not showing up in the Illustrator application.
Does anyone know what might be wrong, or what I can do?
I forgot to say, this is on Mac.
Apparently you never got an answer to this quesion... Bummer.
Sorry for the delayed response. I would request you to share a few more details like:
I will be looking forward to your responses.
Thanks & Reagrds,
how about we start with the same system and the same version of illustrator?
I just dont want to have to go though re setting every single setting and workspace preference just because i updated my second machine
I exported Illustrator seeting from one machnine, same version, same OS and imported on the other machnine and it does not read them.
Select Window > Application Frame to toggle it on or off. The Application bar across the top contains a workspace switcher, menus (Windows only), and other application controls. Choose Window > Workspace > Manage Workspaces.
Sorry about the trouble. I am afraid sync settings are no longer available in the current versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. For more details, you may check out this help article (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/sync-settings.html).
However, you can try to copy the Workspaces folder manually from the following locations and paste it to the exact location on your other machine or another version of Illustrator installed on your device. I hope it helps!
Thanks & Regards,
Open your previous Illustrator version or other computer you want to pull workspaces from,
